Oh how I love this boy. He warms my heart when I see him, and I know how much he loves me too. Thankfully, he still wants to spend time with me and loves coming by himself to spend the night. The reality is that one day soon he won't want to but for now, it's like it's always been with us.
Tomorrow he's celebrating his 9th birthday. He and his sisters are in a Christmas program at church in the afternoon then we'll have a birthday dinner at his house. It's hard having a birthday so close to Christmas so we've promised him, since he's been so understanding, that we'll have a special 6-mth. birthday party for him. He's such a good boy.
Happy Birthday, sweet Sage, and may your ninth year be full of wonderful, exciting and peaceful days. And if you need me, just call.
